    True -- Fantastico is creating major security problems across the Internet.

    But really it's the hosting companies and the site owners who do not force the upgrades.

    Fantastico is just a tool, albeit a poor one.

    I'm sure in a few years people will have ftp and uploading new versions will be something anybody is going to be comfortable doing, but yes, the hosting companies and wordpress should work on enabling the average blogger (non techie) to have an easier way to upgrade to the latest versions.
    I am not sure about the number, but I would say that around 80 percent of bloggers out there have never used any ftp client before.

    Supposedly WordPress 2.7's new update mechanism will make this all far more painless.

    I use Fantastico all the time as it creates everything for me in an auto way, then, as soon as it finishes the job, I just upload the latest available version.
